2017 EMS FUND DRIVE
Dear Friend and Neighbor,
Since 1953, the Jacksonville Volunteer Fire Company, Inc. has been proudly serving the Jacksonville community and surrounding neighborhoods. While our mission of providing first-class emergency medical and fire suppression services has remained the same since that time, the importance of our role as first responders to medical
emergencies has greatly increased.
Look no further than our call statistics over the past several years to see the degree to which our community relies on our medical services. In 2016 our ambulance responded to just over 1,200 calls, an increase of 13% from 2015. Based on our response statistics so far in 2017, we are tracking to record a nearly 10% increase in responses from 2016.
As we continue to respond to more emergency medical service calls from the community each year, our operating costs continue to increase, making your financial support continually more important. In addition to the efforts of our members, your financial support is the key to ensuring we have the resources to continue these invaluable services.
We strive to maintain quality medical services with highly trained members and the very best life-saving equipment. Your tax-deductible donation goes directly to cover operating, equipment, and training costs.
We hope that we can once again count on your thoughtful and generous support for our annual EMS fund drive. You may also donate safely and securely online by clicking the Donate button on the top left of our website.
